    Cargo aircraft of the U.S.A. Air Forces Southern Command have airlifted more than 150,000 pounds?

  • Description

    Cargo aircraft of the U.S.A. Air Forces Southern Command have airlifted more than 150,000 pounds (70,000 kilograms) of emergency supplies to disaster areas in Peru, but many tons of supplies are still tangled up in red tape in Los Angeles.

    Many churches and colleges in the United States have collected food and clothing for the earthquake victims and the response was generous. But more than 300,000 pounds of emergency supplies are still sitting in a Los Angeles warehouse. There is no way that can be found to get the supplies to the earthquake victims in Peru, there isn't any money to pay for shipment of the supplies and so far the U.S. Government has said it can't help.

    Organisers of the relief effort say bureaucratic red tape is keeping the supplies from reaching the quake victims. Andrea Fischbach of the International students Club explained the situation.
